Education and schools

There is a comprehensive school in Sulkava. The town centre hosts the grades 1–9, and Lohilahti hosts the grades 0–6.

In the Sulkava comprehensive school, the town center’s central school offers teaching for each grade separately, and the Lohilahti school has combined classes. Each pupil has the right to good education and success in school work. Learning takes place in active interaction with other pupils, teachers, and other adults, as well as with different communities and learning environments. Each semester has a theme that varies, and it is reflected in the teaching holistically. Our school is also involved in the School on the Move programme.

Sulkava comprehesive school offers buddy student, VERSO, prefect, student board, and youth council activities. Our school also has a parents’ association.

In addition to class and subject teachers, our school employs two all-round special needs teachers, and guidance counsellors.

Our school buys the school meals and facilities’ maintenance services from Järvi-Saimaan palvelut.
